Stereotype (You lie? I fick it fo you!)

Stereotypes can be positive or negative in tone. Stereotypes are typically generalizations based on minimal or limited knowledge about a group to which the person doing the stereotyping does not belong. The video above is one of many stereotypes here in America. Stereotypes may represent people entirely in terms of narrow assumptions about their biology, nationality, sexual orientation, disability and or any other number of categories.

Like if you are Vietnamese you just belong to the nail salon and nothing but the nail salon. If you are Korean you work in the laundromat you dry clean the whole community's dirty clothes. And here's more... If you are Asian you can't drive! And if you are Mexican, people think you work in landscaping industry duh! And if you say to people you are Filipino, they will all assume that you are a Doctor, which is not bad at all right? A Doctor who became a Nurse...
